This is my first Starmore. One of the simpler ones from what I have seen. I finished it last week for my granddaughter, just in time for the cold weather.

It's from "The Children's Collection" and is still available directly from Starmore's Virtual yarns web site. I just wish the Aran Knitting book was still available. I would love to knit a sweater or two from it.

Thank you :) I enjoyed the pattern, but have to admit I wasn't that enamoured with the yarn. At least I bought the yarn at a great discount.

I can't take credit for the color. My granddaughter, although only 2, is VERY opinionated. She picked the pattern from several I showed her. Picked the color from my stash (ALWAYS pink for her) and decided on the buttons from a selection I showed her.

She would have helped me knit it if she could have. Actually she does try and help me knit. I have a post about that on my blog.

Thanks again for looking :)
